The Elite16 is a collaborative project by Amber of Red Tile Studio and I, Nanako of Pig and Fish. We work together and are the voices behind the Elite16 here on the blog and on the other social networks. We're both shop owners on Etsy and have identified a need in the Etsy marketplace for finding quality shops and items. Our goal here is to help people connect and find some of the best shops on Etsy through sharing some of our favorites! We spend a lot of time on Etsy and know our way around pretty well - so we're bringing our INSIDE knowledge straight to you! We've just added a new ABOUT page to the blog, which you can click on to read more about us and the Elite16!
